Returning to Work After Summer Vacation

It’s officially back to school season. Education is unlike any other job I’ve ever worked. Although we NEED the time off, it can be hard to transition back to a work mindset. That said, this year I was so ready to return to work. I think I was craving the routine. I returned to work August 25- workshop week (a week before the students). It was long and full of meetings. But it was nice seeing everyone and getting re-acclimated to being at the school. 

This year I’m teaching an English class for students with IEP’s. For the last five years I’ve taught the Read 180 class. It was a general education class for low readers, but not special education specific. I’ll teach and co-teach in other classes throughout the year. My goal for this year is to help my students make gains in their reading, graduation, and post-high school plans. I pray to GOD that we have a safe, successful, fun year!
